NFL Insider’s Alert: Teams Beware of Drafting QB Drake Maye!

NFL Insider's Alert: Teams Beware of Drafting QB Drake Maye!

Former NFL analyst Merril Hoge has issued a stark warning to coaches and general managers gearing up for the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. Hoge cautions that selecting North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye could potentially lead to job insecurity and even getting ‘fired.’ The highly-touted Maye is expected to be a top selection, possibly landing with the Commanders at No. 2 or the Patriots right after. Hoge likened Maye to Titans QB Malik Willis, known for erratic performances and currently sitting behind Will Levis on the depth chart.

Hoge’s critique stemmed from Maye’s on-field inconsistencies, deeming him a risky choice for any team eyeing a top pick. Despite Maye’s impressive stats with 3,608 yards, 24 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in the 2023 season, concerns revolve around his performance decline compared to the previous year. In 2022, Maye led the Tar Heels to the ACC Championship game but experienced setbacks in both seasons with North Carolina stumbling towards the end.

Maye’s meetings with the Patriots and Commanders suggest serious interest from these franchises, with the Patriots hosting him multiple times and the Commanders engaging with him pre-draft. As the NFL Draft approaches on April 25, speculations are rife about Maye’s potential impact and the risks tied to his selection. Will Maye live up to the hype as a top-three pick, or will his performance validate Hoge’s concerns and add another cautionary tale to NFL draft history? Stay tuned as the NFL drama unfolds this month.
